Line a loaf pan or 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, protein powder, granulated sweetener of choice, nutmeg and cinnamon and mix well.
In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, heat your nut butter with your sticky sweetener until combined. Pour your wet mixture, along with rum extract, to the dry mixture and mix well until crumbly. Using a tablespoon, add milk of choice until a very thick batter is formed.
Pour eggnog bar batter into the lined baking pan and press firmly in place. Lightly sprinkle with extra coconut flour/sweetener and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, to firm up. Slice into bars and enjoy!
* If you swap out the coconut flour, the bars will be less firm and need less milk. ** Depending on what protein powder you use, you may need more milk than 1/4 cup. *** Adjust accordingly- My protein powders are sweetened so I kept it to 2 tablespoons **** Depending on the brand of protein powder and/or coconut flour, you'll most likely need more. If you want a shortcut, feel free to swap out the milk of choice with cartoned eggnog. Simply leave out the nutmeg and increase the cinnamon by 1/4 teaspoon. Bars should be kept in the refrigerator, and are freezer friendly.
